CEMPRE works to promote recycling, circular economy, reverse logistics and the concept of shared responsibility in solid waste management provided for in the National Solid Waste Policy (PNRS), working with the private sector, the public sector and the civil society. Over its three decades of existence, CEMPRE has developed several publications to support environmental education for recycling, manuals for waste picker cooperatives and public agents, and the traditional Ciclosoft Survey, which represents the largest database on selective collection in the country.
